Earth Applications of Space Program Water-purification Technology Described in Summer 2014 Newsletter from Arizona Water Resources Research Center

NASA Water Recycling Technologies Have Earthbound Uses,” in the Summer 2014 issue of Arizona Water Resource (p. 1), from the Arizona Water Resources Research Center in Tucson, is a two-page article describing several commercial “spinoffs” from water-treatment systems developed for the U.S. space-exploration program.  Such systems’ portability, relative ease of maintenance, and alternatives to chlorine for disinfection have made them valuable in disaster areas, remote locations, and other earth-bound situations.  The article is online at https://wrrc.arizona.edu/innovative-technologies, or contact the Arizona center at (520) 621-9591, or e-mail: wrrc@cals.arizona.edu.
